Saturday the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation held its inaugural no-gi World Championships in Los Angeles. It was a day full of surprises and although some of the big names in the sport of BJJ were not present, the event was full of excitement and very high-end jiu-jitsu.

Our show today includes interviews with:

  • Xande Ribeiro, fresh off his win at the Super Challenge last week
  • Bill Cooper, who had an amazing debut in black belt competition
  • Jeff Monson, who won the black belt absolute division
  • Franjinha, Bill Cooper’s coach at Paragon Jiu-Jitsu who won his own division
  • UFC Commentator Joe Rogan

We’ll also go over the most recent news elsewhere in the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Remember it’s up to you to vote for the best BJJ blog of 2007!
